dragonfly washcloth - free!

dragonfly washcloth

i blogged about this little washcloth i made an age ago, but since i am on ravelry and have emailed it out to bunches of people, i decided to officially offer it up as a free pattern. it's one of my favorite and most well-used knitted items, and it makes a great little gift with a bar of soap. so here ya go--have at it.

you can download it directly here.
or if you prefer, here's the ravelry pattern link.

ps--i have no delusions about becoming a designer or anything, but i might someday get around to drawing a few more washcloths. i'll keep you posted. :)

My neighbor Diana is nuts about dragonflies so I immediately whipped out three of these for her with some stashed cotton I had...her words were "These are smokin'! She really, really liked them so thank you for sharing! :)

jackie said...

Awesome, Heidi! Thanks for the feedback. Happy knitting!

Hi Jackie,
I've made your beautiful pattern several times while cuddling my sleeping new daughter and gave them away as gifts. I've since been asked if I would make them for a Christmas market. Would you mind? Thanks heaps, Laura

jackie said...

hi laura,

i don't mind a bit, but i really appreciate you asking beforehand! :)
knit away...

jackie said...

hi pat,

i am sorry i somehow missed this comment, but i thought i'd post this in case you are still looking for the butterfly. it's from this booklet from leisure arts:
http://www.amazon.com/Baby-Washcloths-Knit-Leisure-Arts/dp/1601403232/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

the whole booklet is good, by the way--worth the price!

Thanks for posting the pattern for the dragonfly. I used the motif for a table runner, putting one at each end. Turned out well. Gave it as a gift to my sister after a trip where we had seen numerous dragonflies flitting along the beach and the trails at Myrtle Beach and Huntington Beach State Park.
